    Required Parts Stabilizer Elevator Fuselage Rudder Wing Aileron (R&L) Tail gear wire Hinge (17)

    Required Tools and Adhesives Thin CA T-pins 6-minute epoxy Petroleum jelly Drill Drill bit: 1/16", 3/32" Hobby knife

    Step 1Locate three hinges. Place a T-pin in the center of each hinge.

    Step 2Drill a 1/16" hole in both a stabilizer and elevator half in the center of the hinge locations.

    Step 3Place the hinges in the stabilizer.

    Step 4Slide the elevator and stabilizer together. Remove the T-pins. There should be a 1/64" gap between the stabilizer and elevator.

    Step 5Check that the tips of the stabilizer and elevator are aligned. Wick thin CA into each of the hinges.

    Note: Do not use accelerator in the hinging process. The CA must be allowed to soak into the hinge naturally.

    Step 6After the CA has cured, flex the surfaces several times to break in the hinges.

    Step 7Pull on both surfaces to make sure the hinges are secure.

    Step 8Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the aileron hinges. Each aileron will use four hinges. Center the ailerons and make sure they are not binding before gluing the hinges.

    Step 9Coat the tail gear wire near the bushing with petroleum jelly. Work the lubricant into the bearing to prevent epoxy from entering the bearing, gluing the bearing to the wire.

    Step 10Drill a 3/32" hole in the rudder 1 1/4" from the bottom.

    Step 11Cut a groove from the hole to the bottom of the rudder to allow clearance for the tail gear bearing.

    Step 12Apply a thin layer of lubricant where the bearing will ride in the rudder. Use 6
